Queen Elizabeth II’s 2001 Daimler Super V8 LWB limousine is going up for auction on August 31st.

Since the model was built for the monarch, it features a number of special touches including a center armrest with a slide out section that holds a handbag. The car also has blue flashing strobes lights, non-functional communications equipment and a supercharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that develops 375 bhp (280 kW).

The car is being sold by Historics at Brooklands and is expected to fetch £25,000 – £30,000 ($38,275 – $45,935 / €28,815 – €34,580).
